You probably don't want to use that package version.  NetworkManager has
two branches now, STABLE and HEAD.  The only real difference between the
two is that HEAD targets dbus 0.3 and HAL 0.5.  These versions of HAL
and dbus are not available on Fedora Core 3, and so you have to use
STABLE for FC3.  I've been quite actively backporting fixes to the
STABLE branch of NetworkManager, and even some new features are done on
STABLE and up-ported to HEAD.

HEAD = NetworkManager-0.4
STABLE = NetworkManager-0.3.4

If you can wait a day or so, I'll push the latest NetworkManager-0.3.4
to fc3-updates-testing.
